Decent perimeter shooter but his outside range needs some work
Needs to get stronger
Summary: Despite struggling with the high expectations casted upon him before he even stepped onto the floor as a Tar Heel, Barnes is still one of the top prospects for the 2011 NBA Draft. He has a complete all-around game on the offensive end and will end up being a special player at the next level.
Player Comparison: Tracy McGrady. Think T-Mac early in his career, and not the washed-up, injury-riddled version we have seen the past couple of years. Barnes has an offensive game similar to McGrady though McGrady was more skilled than Barnes with the ball in his hands early in his career. Barnes can create his own shots, get to the basket, is loaded with potential and is still trying to become a true threat from the perimeter just like McGrady in his early NBA days.
While we greatly differ on prospect rankings, something that should be assumed this early in the process, I see great thought was put into each pick and they all make sense when looked at through your perspective on the players. Great job!
Out of sheer boredom and the upcoming NBA draft has gotten me itching to make a new mock draft. Of course the NFL draft is a whole lot less predictable than the NBA draft, but also provides more success stories than the NBA draft. Again, I used schedules to determine each team's records and if you get upset with me just remember it's June and a whole lot can change by next April.
